This is something I have to reflect upon.
I'm under the impression that commercial exploitation destroys anything good that comes from hacking.
At times, I'd like a license stricter then AGPL for my code, just to protect it from "the market".
And I refuse to accept that being commercial is the only way to be useful to people. That's the ethics of Capitalism, and I don't like it.
In theory they are.
Sadly, sometimes in Italy, they are used to private workers from their rights.
However, my long term dream is to create an hacker cooperative where each developer has the same hour wage which is a fraction of the total income.
This way people would have no reason to compete inside the organization and all to gain from improving the productivity.
The issues are: how to decide rapidly and how to keep all serious at work...
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
